Obituary

SORENSON, GARY A.
Janesville:
Gary A. Sorenson, age 74, of North Las Vegas, NV, passed away April 8, 2019, from natural causes at his home. He was born April 1, 1945, to the late Phillip & Helen (Kluewer) Sorenson.

Sorry to hear of your loss, Phillis emailed me with the news. Gary was my inspiration for joining the marines. I remember Gary from growing up in Wisconsin. I always looked up to him. I looked him up while in Okinawa.

I lost a very dear friend and fellow Marine, Master Gunnery Sergeant Gary A. Sorenson 0811/0812/2362. This last 40 years, he has been a friend, mentor and my hero. He served two tours in Vietnam and Desert Storm, his 30 years of service to this great nation was something everyone should admire. I am no hero but I have walked among a few and Gary you are one of them. Semper fi my brother, one day we will meet again.
